FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2017 – DAY 5
Our “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme of the month is “Perseverance.” This week’s quote is from Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein said, “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
When faced with a problem, try to take a step back and look at it from an alternate perspective. This can help show you which solution would work best.
